While it is definitely capable of some serious performance it is still way too heavy and is still dulled in a way that only a 3000+lb car can be.

BMW long ago forgot that the best way to add performance is to add lightness.
So, by your definition, no current Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo, Corvette, S2000, etc, etc is a sports car! Interesting. A video for you to watch, as I don't think you have any idea what driving a Z4M is like:

I have driven the Boxster and S2000, I own a Z4M roadster, it is by far the rawest sports car of the 3.
